England vs India - Cook's farewell

For some reason the England vs India article has been taken down so here's one for the final test starting today which will be Cook's final game. Can he make it all about him or will his poor form continue? India will want to finish the series with a win as they have made a couple of the games competitive but will want more than 1 win to show for it.

England are unchanged but Moeen moves up to 3 bumping Root, Bairstow, Stokes and Buttler down to 4-7. As always, England bat deep which they need with our top order woes. Rumour suggests India are going to bring in a specialist batsman for Pandya in Hanuma Vihari who I must admit I know nothing about.

Looks like it'll be win the toss and bat first to get the best of the batting conditions.

Can't really blame the bowlers here. Shami has bowled well for no reward. Not looking good for us though with these long boundaries - could be a long 130 overs in the field.

Yeah it was a good fight back by my team. However we could have done better with catching but still it’s all good 👍

Also Kohli quite unlucky with tosses and lost all of them this test series.. Root seems to be a good tosserrr 😂😂

Overcast forecast tomorrow, Jimmy and Broad will be rubbing their hands and I expect them to skittle this fragile Indian batting line up

Billy,

I hate to agree with u pal. I don’t have much expectations either but proud of our bowling this series. Idiot Shastri n Kohl’s selections along with his captaincy really messed up for us!

So, tomorrow, Cook needs another 4 runs to average 45 in test cricket, 29 runs to take 5th place from Sangakarra, 54 runs for a 33rd hundred.

Glad Cook did it. What I have to say is that I think the Indians deserve a lot of credit for their classy reaction to the whole Cook situation. India are a class act.

Also, people have a go about the test rankings etc - but English conditions are just as strange to them as the sub-continent is for us.
